The gorgeously animated Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- is getting a massive patch that will fix its console versions and add improvements to its online gameplay and cross-play.

According to Shoryuken, Arc System Works has revealed the details for its next big Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- console patch. This update will intend to improve the online cross-play matchmaking and stability that PlayStation 3 users get when fighting against PS4 players and vice versa. Arc System Works will be releasing a tournament app later this year that will work with all versions of Guilty Gear Xrd - SIGN-. Also, the studio is trying to fix the PS4's version's ability to search for ranked matches, but this update may not be ready for the release of vers. 1.04.
